Rivers crisis: No going back to PDP – Lawmaker


Enemi George, one of the members of the Rivers State House of Assembly who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, has ruled out returning to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, his former party.

George explained that 27 of them that moved to the APC were committed to supporting President Bola Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’.

He spoke on Wednesday while fielding questions as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

“We have crossed the Rubicon. We have moved to the APC. We voted for the President, if we find Mr President worthy of our votes then I think we should find him worthy of our support.

“We have moved over to join his Renewed Hope Agenda to work hands in gloves with him to ensure that the expectations of Nigerians are fulfilled,” George said.

Rivers has been enmeshed in political crisis as a result of rift between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

The development led to a split of lawmakers in the House, with 27 of them decamping from the PDP to the ruling APC.
